in terms of cutting spending. cutting spending in the tax code. then i think it also keeps promises to people, it to those that were part of their whole life and want nothing more than a secure retirement. and our veterans to whom we have made promises as the have donned the uniform and fought for the country. host: what about the issue of chain cpi? guest: i start with the very basic notion that social security has not contributed one penny to the current deficit or debt. table in not be on the this part of discussion. similarly, to be concerned about the long-term solvency of so-so security. urity.ial sec retirement security is a real question mark for many americans. let's look at the real contributors to our deficit and debt as we try to tackle those challenges. and host: two final questions before we go to calls. this is another article from the hill. why were you left off the list of the 12 senators that went to dinner? iest: i have no idea, but have been very pleased with the president's increase -- increase out reach to the senate and a house. that dialogue is essential to m

and tax returns are not included in any information voluntarily shared with the government under cispa. through the under-- though the underlying bill would not permit this information unless it is a cyberthreat information, i bill support this amendment as it settles some members' concerns and reflects an amendment passed last year overwhelmingly. with that, madam chair, i urge this body's support of this clarification amendment and reserve the -- reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman from michigan reserves. the gentleman from maryland. mr. ruppersberger: i rise in opposition even though i am not opposed. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. ruppersberger: i support chairman ronellers' amendment ensure the privacy. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman from maryland yield back. the gentleman from michigan. mr. rogers: i yield back. the chair: the question is on the amendment offered by the gentleman from michigan. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the ayes have it. the amendment is agreed to. the gentleman from michigan
possessed in this country? and who would pay for it? would gun owners be subject to still more fees or taxes for exercising their second amendment rights? who would have access to the so-called registry? would the public know who owns guns and who does not? who would ensure that this sensitive information is protected and not used for political purposes, and how? we do not know the answers to these questions, but we do know that such restrictions will not prevent the next tragedy. we should not start down this dangerous road. what should we do instead? i have a few suggestions. instead of undermining the second amendment, mr. president, congress should focus its attention on three areas. first, i believe that robust prosecution of violent criminals is the best deterrent for violent crime. prosecutors should punish to the fullest extent of the law individuals who misuse guns, knives or anything else to commit violent crimes. there should be no leniency, mr. president, what ever for the commission of such crimes. secondly, we should examine and address any deficiencies -- and we have them -- i
in new york city. new york already has the highest cigarette tax in the country, as of late last ye, 28 states banned smoking in all general workplaces, public places, including bars and restaurants. so this essentially would raise the age if it goes through to the same age where you can buy booze so booze a cigarettes in the same category. >> you wonder if that will backfire make mor kidshe same with alcohol wan to try i because you have to be 21 to have access to it. >> i don't know. >> i tnk it's a great idea. >> i do, too. >> there needs to be some tougher legislation. >> the good news is that new york smoking rateor teens in new york city is at like 8.5%, which is far less than the state average and the national average, but it's been stagnating. it had been dropping and now it's stagnating. i don't see anything wrong with it. >> this continues the long decline of smoking in america some numbers that stunned me t wasn't until 1998 that smoking was banned aboard all u.s. domestic flights under six hours. >> i remember we were talking about how it doesn't seem like it was that long a
every bill is too big and every deal tends to be today. so for example, like on tax reform, tomorrow i would lower the income tax. if we can compromise on the number i would lower it to 17% tomorrow. just do it. i don't care if people predicted less revenue, less revenue means more revenue in economy. if you in an enormous boost to ththe con and we like under kennedy, like under coolidge and like under reagan when you reduced rates, sometimes you get more revenue. that is because the deal is to be. same with immigration. we make it harder on ourselves are the debt commission, we make it a lot harder to find a deal when it has a thousand moving parts but i think we should go with the things we agree on and boom, boom, boom. it's why the rate -- that's why the public is so upset with us. all the stuff we agree on we won't pass because we say that will be the sweeter for the bigger deal. which we never seem to be able to get to one that break up all these big deals into smaller deals? i tried to pass the stand these a, science and technology these is expanding those. i tried to pass it by
. and then asa to close it off. >> yes, thank you, jim. the tax force says -- the task force says in our report all societies behave differently under stress. at those times they may even take actions that conflict with their essential character and values. and that's what we did here. of we were under stress, and we took actions that conflict with who we are. who we are called to be and who we have committed to be. and then we spent about ten years not being willing to face the truth about that. often by covering what happened with euphemisms and an awful lot of state secrets. so i believe that our detainee task force has functioned as a kind of truth commission, revealing where we strayed from our values by shining the light of investigation and analysis onto the problem in the open that the next time we're under that kind of stress we do not go down the same road. and it has been an honor to serve on this panel. >> thank you, dave. nick? >> very little, just in terms of new things, everyone here has discussed the general contours of the report which is the most important thing. there are som
